    I’m assuming this applies to everything except Jeeps and jeep related accessories?

    Yes, research endlessly, obsess, dream, save then finally buy.

    LOL, I have to admit, some of my bigger Friday evening purchases have been lubricated by a serving or two of alcohol. Like that time I bought 5 pairs of Corral boots in one sitting..
    I did get into trouble for that one even though one pair was for her..

    My wife did the kinda the same thing to me. I was looking at a Warn winch. My birthday was coming up. She got on amazon, looked at winches. She bought me a Smittybilt 12,000 pound X20 winch.....waterproof, wireless controller and synthetic rope. She said it had excellent reviews....yad yad yad.... and so it did. It was not the Warn that I was looking at. So I have a Smittybilt winch. There was no way I could send it back. I just sucked it up. Thats what you do. Say thank you and move on. At the end of the day it is a couple hundred dollars.

    Early in our marriage I bought my wife some jewelry. Seemed like the kind of thing a thoughtful husband would do. Well, she was gracious and thankful, but also pretty clear that it wasn’t her style and that she’d prefer to return it. So I learned a valuable lesson: let her buy her own jewelry. She seems to have reciprocated that re my Jeep parts. It comes down to the particular couple’s dynamic.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
